Struck by the Commonwealth Mint to commemorate the 1838 founding of the Smithsonian. Both the $10 Eagle and Gold Sovereign design coins are struck from .999 pure silver, and only 10,000 of each were minted. The coins display the classic $10 Eagle design and the British Gold Sovereign design.

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation was chosen to grade this coin, and the coins have been awarded the desirable grade of Gem Proof. The coins are encapsulated with the exclusive 1838 Smithsonian Founders Label.
